Spinal fusion surgery is currently recommended when curve magnitude exceeds 40-45 degrees. Early attempts at spinal fusion surgery which were aimed to leave the patients with a mild residual deformity, failed to meet such expectations. These aims have since been revised to the more modest goals of preventing progression, restoring 'acceptability' of the clinical deformity and reducing curvature. In view of the fact that there is no evidence that health related signs and symptoms of scoliosis can be altered by spinal fusion in the long-term, a clear medical indication for this treatment cannot be derived. Knowledge concerning the rate of complications of scoliosis surgery may enable us to establish a cost/ benefit relation of this intervention and to improve the standard of the information and advice given to patients. It is also hoped that this study will help to answer questions in relation to the limiting choice between the risks of surgery and the "wait and see - observation only until surgery might be recommended," strategy widely used. The purpose of this review is to present the actual data available on the rate of complications in scoliosis surgery. Proceeds from the sale of this book go to support an elderly disabled person.
Multiple choice questions make up an important part of the MRCS Part 1 examination. QBase Surgery: 1 is much more than just a book as it also comes with a free CD-ROM. This powerful electronic package is installed easily and gives the reader a huge range of options to greatly enhance the value and utility of the book. Not only can the reader practice the set exams, but the CD-ROM will mark these exams, allow the reader to customize exams to focus in on areas requiring further revision, shuffle the stems to in effect set an inexhaustible number of different papers, and advise on examination strategy. It has the facility to print out and store the results and provide helpful notes on each question. This version of the QBase software (termed QBase+ for this title) has been modified to analyse the non-negatively marked MRCS MCQs and can be installed alongside the 'negatively marked' versions of the program already developed for the anaesthesia and medicine postgraduate examinations.
Through real-time assessments of how the patient's nervous system is functioning throughout a surgical procedure, Neurophysiology in Neurosurgery presents vital techniques to guide surgeons in their efforts to minimize the risks of unintentional damage to healthy nervous tissue. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the most up-to-date intraoperative neurophysiological techniques and guidelines for the managment of neuroanesthesia during MEP monitoring. Neurophysiology in Neurosurgery is a valuable educational tool that describes the theoretical and practical aspects of intraoperative monitoring through example.
